I visited Paxton on my first visit to Australia and Adelaide. Annabelle and Mandy our hosts were excellent. They walked us through some of the best wine in South Australia (and the world) with an informed and friendly manner. A truly excellent vineyard experience.

Visited the cellar door on a Friday afternoon and had a lovely young lady walk us through their wines and have a general chit chat about the area and Adelaide in general. Very helpful and great wines to boot. View across the valley is also to die for Highly recommend a visit

I visited with a group on a Sunday afternoon. We were served by a young man who didn't seem to want to be there, couldn't tell us much about the wines and couldn't answer any questions about the area. The venue itself was lovely and there was a wedding going on (perhaps the experienced staff were busy with that?). Loved... More

We found this gem a couple of years ago tucked away at the beginning of the McLaren Vale wine region. We revisited last weekend specifically to purchase more of their wines as we were finding it difficult to source locally in Brisbane. The winery itself is very clean & the setting just lovely - perfect for functions. Jennifer was extremely... More

Paxton is a must. The tasting list is extensive and they were all delicious! The views and cellar door area is beautiful and they have cheeses and nibbles on offer for you to make your own plate up. We went on a Monday afternoon and had the whole place to ourselves. The staff were very friendly and knowlegable. A lovely... More

Recently my daughter and her partner held their wedding at Paxton's Winery. It was fantastic. The venue was just perfect, the staff were so helpful and friendly all day and night and the wine and food was second to none. The caterer recommended by the wonderfully helpful and efficient Jen (event and cellar door manager) did not disappoint. We hired... More
